US Narrative Competition

World Premiere

FEATURE | United States | 83 MINUTES | English |


New York, Horror, Women, Drama, LGBTQIA+, Thriller

For a group of friends in the Northeast, a weekend getaway at a snowy resort sounds like just what the doctor ordered. An opportunity to reconnect, relax, and recuperate among serene, snow-capped mountains and trees. But peace doesn’t last long as the ghosts of guests past and relationships long buried come to light. Soon enough, their trip transforms into a psychological tailspin and bloody nightmare, as both long-deceased guests and the space itself come to life, and the group turn on each other in a race to stay alive.

In this haunting thriller, a new variation of psychological horror invites audiences to question the limitations of our contemporary relationships with people and spaces, and the implications of undealt trauma. Gayle Rankin gives a blistering lead performance as she battles forces within both the rundown resort and her own mind in an attempt to save her friends, who are brought to life by rising talents Hari Nef, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, and Rad Pereira.––Casey Baron

Bad Things will be preceded by the short Regular Rabbit.
